This book presents a new theoretical framework for the analysis of production processes. Based on a rigorous reconstruction of the intellectual heritage of economics, it also considers issues traditionally left aside by economists--the distinctions of the three dimensions of the production process (tasks, capabilities, and materials in process), the organizational approach to scale and size, and the idea that different institutional set-ups may be compatible with the same objective standard of efficiency.
Investigates theories of production, concentrating on process and scale. Roberto Scazzieri presents a literature survey, develops his own theoretical framework, and applies his theory to recent economic history. It is based upon a rigorous reconstruction of the intellectual heritage of economics.
